Could DREAM End Up In U.S. Or On HDNET?
(mmaweekly.com)
After MMA seemed to disappear in Japan, the Dream promotion emerged from the building blocks of both K-1 Hero’s and the former Pride staff. Now many American fans are asking if and when they will see the promotion’s events on TV in the U.S. and the possibility of seeing the show come to the U.S. FEG executive, Sadaharu Tanikawa, spoke to MMAWeekly.com about the possible expansion of the show into the U.S., but stated that their hopes are to first establish a brand name in Japan before trying their hand in the United States. Tanikawa went on the record saying that it would take “maybe a year or two” for the new Dream promotion to gain the same strength among fans that the former Pride brand did before their demise.

Maurice Smith Calls in Sick to Avoid YAMMA Show
(cagepotato.com)
Seriously. It’s now officially ****** up. Let’s count the fighters that Bob Meyrowitz’s YAMMA 1 event has lost to date: – Headliner Don Frye – Gary Goodridge – Frye’s replacement, Patrick Smith – Rex Richards – Two undisclosed members of the heavyweight tournament The fight card on YAMMA’s site has still not been updated, but we’ll try and keep score for ya’. It was reported earlier that Ricco Rodriguez had been tapped to fill in as one of the replacements in the eight-man tourney, but we’re still not sure where that one stands. Rex Richards was replaced by Kevin Jordan. Don Frye had pulled out for whatever reason — probably because he realized how terrible the card is — and Patrick Smith took over. Then Pat Smith had been dropped due to arrest scheduling and 90-year-old Maurice Smith had been submitted as his replacement

YAMMA Loses Another One
(cagepotato.com)
“Big Daddy” Goodridge If you’re Bob Meyrowitz, at what point do you just throw your hands up and say, “Alright, God didn’t want me to put together a new MMA league; I’m cursed, and my bowl-shaped ring surface is ******* gay.” Because if we were in his shoes, this would be that point. According to TheFightNetwork, Gary Goodridge’s manager Dave Wallace has announced that Goodridge will not be fighting Eric “Butterbean” Esch in a headlining “Master’s Division” match at YAMMA Pit Fighting’s debut event on April 11th, and has chosen instead to focus on a May 9th fight against Eric Pele at a Maximum Fighting Championship card in Alberta, Canada.
